AAA: Gas prices up throughout state

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Retail gas prices increased throughout most of the Aloha State, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.

The Hawaii state average for regular unleaded now tops $4 a gallon again with a six-cent weekly increase to $4.04 per gallon, which was four cents less than last month and one cent higher than last year.

Honolulu's average price $3.98 a gallon for regular unleaded – up a nickel from last week, five cents less than last month and up 10 cents from a year ago.

In Hilo, the average gas price ticked up to $4.06 per gallon, an increase of 12 cents from last week, four cents more than last month and 16 cents less than this time last year. 

Wailuku's average is $4.04 a gallon, up three cents from last week, three cents less than last month and 32 cents lower than last year. 

"Motorists in six states (Colorado, Idaho, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Utah and Wyoming) currently pay less than $3 a gallon at the pump, while the state average in Hawaii tops more than $4 per gallon," according to AAA Hawaii Branch Supervisor Cynthia Hall. "The highest average prices in the continental United States are found in California and also in the Northeast, where effects of Superstorm Sandy continue to be felt."
